I am an experienced credentialed teacher. I have taught Math at secondary as well as a contained classroom in Elementary. Because I am credentialed in a foreign language, I have successfully taught English as a Second Language at Elementary and Adult levels in Michigan, Texas and California.

In addition to my teaching experience I worked as a programmer, instructor and manager in the computer industry for 13 years.

I enjoy aiding in developing good 'learners' in all subject areas. My public school students test scores have always improved significantly above state standards. Understanding the learning process was critical to their advancement.

Learning should also be fun!

Approved subjects
